No Parking.

I had been peeping a jacket identical to this one for years. I saw it pop up in straight sizes, on those somewhat sketchy online boutique websites, and I couldn't believe two things:

  1. That the design gods knew me so well and knew I'd love this jacket to infinity and beyond.
  2. That those same Godly sons of bitches didn't make it in my damn size.

For years I pined over this jacket, even considered making one of my own, but then there it was, a few years later...just as fabulous as ever. Oh, and it was in PLUS!

I really didn't hesitate to not only buy it in black....but I bought this bad muthah shutcho mouth, in the most amazing OxBlood. My world was made.

I also had my eyes on these super interesting jean/pants. It was a unique take on the black jean and I can rarely pass on an opportunity to acquire unique is LIFE!!! 

During the whole Black Friday hubub, I almost snagged these (along with a few other pairs of jeans from Fashion to figure) but I couldn't pull the trigger. My mother came to my home baring gifts and it was then, the radiant glow when I opened said gift, was like a ray of light shooting from out of a treasure chest full of the most precious of gems and gold.

I died a thousand deaths. 

I decided that these bottoms would go swimmingly with my new BOSS AF jacket, and there was no other way to top the look off, than to pair it all with these sparkly slip-ons of my dreams. 

Can we also take a moment to enjoy the back of this's totes amaze when your back looks as good as your front.

Oh and by the by... I'm a 3X, and this entire outfit is super stretchy and comfy,

Silver & Taupe

by Jamila Pierre

Typically when one thinks Fall they think warm deep saturated hues, to be honest I do too, but you gotta give it up for the slightly unexpected. You gotta give it up for the cool tones, pastels, even the neon's  that make their much appreciated appearance from time to time. 

Could we also discuss my infatuation (which is steadily growing into a full blown Romeo & Juliet kind of love) for purple we? It's the perfect balance of dark and bright, making me feel sensual and giddy all at the same time.

I bought this dress (in several colors because i'm a crazy person) from Target, along with a bunch of other things that will surely grace the bloggity soon enough. I knew I wanted to tie it into a hiked up knot and I wanted to pair it with a few edgy pieces.


I threw on my black leather shorts from Forever21 (which you can't even see) so that people wouldn't be able to see my naughty bits.

Also, these boots are becoming my life boots and it petrifies me to no end, it means that I my urge to wear them will increase and by doing so they will inevitably meet their demise.

What I'm Wearing: 

  1. Dress from $11 (On sale)
  2. Belt from V.I.M. $12
  3. Jacket from Strawberry. $19.99
  4. Necklace from AFAZE. (3 for $10)
  5. Boots from $15 (On sale from $45)
  6. Leather shorts (that you can't see) from $20
